Serves: 4 - 6

(4 - 6) 1/2" thick, skinned salmon fillets - rinsed

lemon juice
2 Tbls. Cajun seasoning
4 - 6 lemon wedges - for garnish, optional

Ingredients at Firehouse Pantry

-Trim off the thin edges of fillets, as these would burn.
-Pat fillets dry and refrigerate until ready to cook.
-Melt butter in a large, heavy frying pan (preferably cast-iron) over medium heat.
-Remove pan from heat; stir in lemon juice and seasoning; pour mixture into a shallow dish and cool until lukewarm.
-Heat the skillet over high heat until it starts to smoke.
-Coat 1 fish fillet in butter mixture.
-Place fish in hot skillet. Fish will sear and cook almost immediately. Turn fillet over and blacken other side.
-Repeat with remaining fillets, discarding pan drippings after each fillet.
-As fillets are cooked, remove from heat and keep warm.
-When all fillets have been cooked, wipe skillet clean and return to heat.
-Pour left-over butter mixture into pan and swirl skillet 5 or 6 times to blacken the butter.
-Drizzle butter over each fillet, garnish with lemon and parsley/dill, and serve hot.

  • My husband and son don't like salmon. They bought me a fresh fillet and decided they would eat something else. I prepared my dinner before they wanted to eat and gave them a taste. Both of them have decided they now like salmon when it's prepared with your recipe. I thought it was absolutely awesome better than some restaurants I've eaten in. Thanks for sharing.

  • I was looking for an easy way to blacken salmon.... this is great! It is easy... and very clear as to what I need to do. Thanks!

  • First, it is great to be able to get your recipe for blackened salmon. Had in restaurant and now want to try it myself at home. Understandably, a cast iron skillet would be best. However, can a regular stainless steel frying pan be used? You got it right. I am not a chef. I will get a cast iron frying pan if that is really the best. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  • WOW Yummy Yummy Yummy Rarely does my husband tell me he likes a meal so much. Thanks!!

  • Did this recipe but smotherd on top fresh asparagus, fresh time and garlic sprouts was the best salmon I have ever had.
